Why I love boarding…


If you’ve been following us on social or reading our blog posts then you’ll know that we recently sponsored a competition run by the Boarding School Association (BSA)! To celebrate National Boarding Week in June we offered all of our budding tree climbers the opportunity to win ¬£200 worth of Go Ape vouchers, simply by telling¬†the BSA why they love boarding in 25 words or less. Thank you to all the students who took the time to enter!
